Lines have a great impact on camouflaging or enhancing our body shape. The effect is most clearly highlighted by high-contrasting stripes. Take this striped dress on Taylor Swift for example: the variegated lines, combined with strategically placed black side panels, result a visually slimming look. 

Accessories, once again, played a big part in their outfits: a demure, sophisticated handbag and cool, retro oxford pumps balanced the sexiness of Taylor Swift’s mini body-con dress, while Olivia Palermo chose a structured colorblock satchel and lux calf-hair print slipper to elevate the casualness of her stripe tee.

In Chinese: 线条对整体着装的影响很大,对比强烈的条纹尤其能说明这一点。拿小天后泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)的这条裙子来说吧:它的条纹从胸线以下变得密集起来,再加上侧边黑色的拼接,视觉上非常显瘦。

除了线条的作用,这两个造型再一次提醒了我们配饰的影响力:泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)优雅的裸色方包学院风的牛津包鞋平衡了她包身迷你短裙的性感;奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)则用有趣又有正式感的撞色手包和波纹马毛鞋提升条纹T恤的休闲感。

In a blink of an eye, we’re approaching the end of summer, which means the sartorial challenge we are facing now is transition dressing. Today’s two outfits from style mavens showed us how to transform summer staples like shorts, clogs and bright accessories into fall with ease. Hint: show a touch of bare skin and stay within a rich, sophisticated palette, like the bordeaux, olive and mustard seen here.

In Chinese: 眨眼的功夫夏天都快要结束了,这也意味了我们在日常着装上面临的挑战要从对抗酷暑转为在夏末秋初的尴尬过渡季如何穿搭了。今天的这两个时尚偶像就示范了如何把夏天的单品,比如短裤、木底拖以及亮色的配饰等穿到秋天。小提示:降低露肤度并选择秋冬常见的优雅色系比如在上面的造型里看到的酒红、芥末黄和橄榄绿等在视觉上给人以温暖的颜色。

Red Jacket, Two Ways

Colors ruled fall/winter 2013 runways, from classic primary hues like red and blue to pretty pastels like lavender (Not surprised since we saw so many black & white this spring/summer). Today’s featured ladies rocked this color trend in two totally different ways:

Colors, gingham, lace, cut-outs are all in one outfit? Sounds busy, but Olivia Palermo nailed it by keeping the color palette simple. This outfit (above left) is trendy and glamorous, great for the coming holiday parties.

Natalia Vodianova’s take (above right) on red blazer followed the classic model’s off-duty way: teaming it with perfect fit skinny jeans, sexy black pumps and a classic quilted bag. Mixing one trend with our oldies and goodies is always a smart way to look chic & current without trying too hard.

今年春夏看了那么多黑白色,一定渴望来点色彩吧。这个秋冬明亮的饱和色比如经典的正红色、宝蓝色和柔和的马卡龙色正流行,从 Olivia Palermo 和超模 Natalia Vodianova的这两个look中学学怎么搭配吧。

色彩、蕾丝、格纹以及透视等这些流行元素如果同时出现在一个look里,听起来很不搭,但Olivia Palermo保持整身色调相对简单(经典的黑白与红色)让这些看似冲突的元素成了协调前卫的组合,派对穿时尚抢眼又性感。

Natalia Vodianova则选择了经典的超模街拍look:把流行的新欢和衣橱中经典又实穿的旧爱搭在一起,经典的菱格纹包合身的牛仔裤性感又百搭的黑色尖头鞋我们一定都有,加件最流行的外套就有了随意又体现时尚品味的造型,无论是彩色的西装外套飞行员夹克还是可可呢大衣
